Tips for Calculating a Regular Rate of Pay For Your Employees


Ensure you're compliant with employee wage payments and avoid back pay, wage and hour violations, and other consequences.

One of the most common United States Department of Labor (USDOL) wage and hour violations is the incorrect payment of overtime wages. The USDOL reports that, in 2022, an average of $1,393 in back wages was collected for each employee. Back wages are not the only impact of incorrect overtime calculations. Also impacted are tax payments, benefits, reporting, etc. The impact of paying employees incorrectly is far-reaching and expensive. Payment of wages is more complicated than the hourly rate multiplied by hours worked. If you offer shift differentials, health insurance opt-out money, and bonuses for production, attendance, and on-call time - the calculation of the overtime rate of pay becomes more complicated. This presentation will provide you with the information and understanding you need to ensure your compliance with employee wage payments and avoid back pay, wage and hour violations, and other consequences of incorrect wage payments.
